Officer April Harding of the LAPD tells UsMagazine.com: "It wasn't a hit and run. She wasn't under the influence and she wasn't arrested. She was being followed by paparazzi and as she was trying to elude them, she struck two cars. She wasn't under the influence of any drugs. No crime was committed and she wasn't arrested," Harding said.

A rep for the actress tells Us the actress did not flee the scene.

"While being followed by paparazzi, Ms. Jones struck two parked cars. She did not flee the scene; she left her license with a witness and walked to her nearby home to call the police," Jones' rep says. "She immediately returned to the scene to speak with the police. No citation was issued, nobody was injured, there was no alcohol involved and there is no investigation pending."

As for Bobby Flay's odd appearance on the scene? "They are friends, nothing more."
